(ReliableNews.org) – Democrat lawmakers have bashed Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron Desantis for his efforts to push back against draconian COVID-based quarantines and restrictions. Yet, when they want to vacation, they seem to love to go to the free state of Florida for rest and relaxation, free from the policies of their home states.
News media outlets exploded in outrage on January 3 after a video emerged of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hanging out at a Miami bar and not wearing a mask. The video came out days after a photograph circulated of her dining at a Florida restaurant — maskless then, as well. As expected, AOC tried to turn the tables on DeSantis and accused him of being AWOL from his official duties.

Not one to be outdone, on January 5, photos emerged of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) living it up in an upscale Miami hotel while on vacation. Like his New York counterpart, Swalwell enjoyed his time at the resort without wearing a mask thanks to Gov. DeSantis’ policies.
It’s important to remember two things regarding AOC and Swalwell and their Florida vacations. First, both lawmakers come from states with some of the harshest coronavirus restrictions in the nation. Second, they have been two of Gov. DeSantis’ harshest critics regarding his approach to preserving personal liberties for Floridians. Is anyone surprised by the hypocrisy?
